Computer simulations of crowded protein solutions

This project supported by the National Science Foundation involves the study of highly concentrated protein solutions via simulation and experiment to better understand how proteins behave inside the cell.

The specific goal of the computational part is to carry out molecular dynamics simulations of mixtures of proteins and analyze their interactions. The results will be compared with experimental results.

This research will be carried out in collaboration with a senior researcher in the Feig laboratory and requires a background in biochemistry, physical chemistry or physics, and basic computer skills.
